Question about A axis feed rates
« on: September 17, 2006, 11:33:58 AM »
Wrote a program that cuts a design on a cylinder.  I use a feed rate of 2 only specifying it once at the beginning of the program.  When a line of code executes with a X and A move the feed rate looks to be 2 ipm on the X and the A moves quickly.  But when a line has only an A move the feed rate is very slow, it looks like 2 degrees per minute.

How can I make it so the A axis is has a constant feed rate (like the when it feeds with the X axis)?  Am I doing something wrong when I set up the feed rate? 

Thanks.

Dan.

Put in the Axis Dia in on the settings page and Enable the Feedrate. this will take into account the Dia that you are feedin on so that you will not have to program on Degrees per min  :)
